Profile

Dr. Michael Morbius, Ph.D., M.D., Nobel laureate, is one of the smartest minds in the medical field. Unfortunately, he is doomed to die unless he can find a cure for his condition. He has shunned the public eye as his porphyria has become more advanced, keeping a private life to focus on his work and to keep people from remembering him as a man whose body has turned against him.

Personality

Click to expand.

Driven:
Michael knows he is on borrowed time. His own research has shown him he has only a few years to live - his last years will be unspeakable, and he will die bedridden, in agony, and most likely will die insane.

Reclusive:
Michael spent most of his life hiding from the world - the sun, other people who would tease him about his condition, adults who would patronize him. He is more comfortable in a lab, under protection.

Wealthy:

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Alad-Deficiency Porphyria:
This is the genetic disorder that has plagued Michael for most of his life. In recent years, he has begun to suffer seizures, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and erratic mood swings. Unless something changes, he will be dead in three years.

Social Weakness:
Michael hasn't had much experiences in social matters. If it isn't a conference, or a seminar, or any other science meeting related to finding out more about his specialities, he interacts only when forced to. He can come across as stand-offish, but it is because he doesn't know how to act.
